Localized particle boundary condition enforcements for the state-based peridynamics
C.T. Wuand Bo Ren

    The state-based peridynamics is considered a nonlocal method in which the equations of motion utilize integral form as opposed to the partial differential equations in the classical continuum mechanics. As a result, the enforcement of boundary conditions in solid mechanics analyses cannot follow the standard way as in a classical continuum theory. In this paper, a new approach for the boundary condition enforcement in the state-based peridynamic formulation is presented. The new method is first formulated based on a convex kernel approximation to restore the Kronecker-delta property on the boundary in 1-D case. The convex kernel approximation is further localized near the boundary to meet the condition that recovers the correct boundary particle forces. The new formulation is extended to the two-dimensional problem and is shown to reserve the conservation of linear momentum and angular momentum. Three numerical benchmarks are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness and accuracy of the proposed approach.
